The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a spotlight on technology as an enabler of work with many organisations turning to support flexible and remote working. However, these circumstances have also revealed other challenges; such as productivity, work-life balance, workforce engagement and monitoring staff’s wellbeing; which all need to be considered when organisations introduce new technology into the workplace.
The latest report from CIPD: Workplace technology: the employee experience builds on several studies, which collectively consider the rise of new technologies and the effects they have on work and the workforce. The report offers an interesting insight into how monitoring technology and automation can sometimes negatively impact employee wellbeing. 73% of employees feel that introducing workplace monitoring would damage trust between workers and their employers.
